Back at the start of the month, Warlorder Tom wrote a fantastic article on making urban bases. Now he’s back with a guide on painting them!
We’re heading back to the home-made, Milliput-paved streets of Stalingrad. Having spent considerable time moulding my own bases, I wanted to find a quick and effective way of painting them that would show off the time and effort spent.
This paint scheme uses a couple of simple techniques and just three paints to produce excellent street bases in a very short space of time. With a little extra effort, you can make some extra bits and pieces to breathe life into the base!
To paint your street bases, you’ll need:
- Army Painter Uniform Grey
- Army Painter Stone Golem
- Army Painter Brainmatter Beige
- Army Painter Dark Tone Ink
- Battlefields & Basing Building Rubble
Step 1: Basecoat
Paint the whole base with Uniform Grey.
Lightly drybrush the whole base with Stone Golem.
Step 3: Wash
Wash the base the Dark Tone ink.
Lightly drybrush the base with Brainmatter Beige, focussing on the edges of the paving slabs.
Use the Building Rubble to add some additional details to your base. Scraps of sprue, MDF offcuts and PVA-soaked paper painted with Brainmatter Beige and washed with Strong Tone to further decorate the base.
